Check out a local restaurant with Paleo options:


  1. Good Morning. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. Today I will try to do some cooking for the week. My hollow flutters and Plank done.

    Remember Strong Starts Here!!

  2. One of my go to preps is: "Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Slaw":

    1. 2 chicken breasts, cooked and diced
    2. 1/2 cup diced sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil
    3. 1 small appled, diced
    4. 4 cups shredded or diced green or purple cabbage
    5. 1/4 cup sliced almonds
    6. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    7. 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    8. 1 tablespoon dried oregano
    9. Sea Salt and black pepper to taste

    1. In large salad bowl, add the cabbage, chicken,apples and sun-dried tomatoes. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, oregano, sea salt and pepper.
    2. Drizzle the dressing onto the salad and toss together.
    3. Top with the sliced almonds and serve.

    I will eat on it for several days.
    Enjoy! :-)

    1. That sounds delicious! Will have to try it this week! Or, have you brought it to one of the potlucks?

    2. That makes me drool ! Wish I could eat tomatoes!! I eat on the broccoli slaw I found on the last challenge for days too... Im about to make two chickens again tomorrow. I ran out of time last night to salt brine them, so I didnt get to make them today! oh well!

    3. Yes I brought it to one of the Potlucks. It is very good.

  3. Yesterday, I cut up all my veggies (broccoli, celery, cucumbers, radishes, tomatoes, peppers) for salads. I washed my fruit. I diced some smoked chicken. I fixed a new recipe "Enchilada Chicken Stew" in the crockpot. I cooked it overnight and turned it to warm this morning. It was very good. I doubled the recipe so there would be plenty for this week. Found recipe on

  4. I will boil a bunch of eggs tomorrow as I have to buy more. I bought some canned salmon at Costco and it's really good with salt and pepper and when the avocados ripen I will add those. Travis is going to grill tomorrow night so that is the bulk of my food prep.

  5. 10K run for organ donor awareness this am. Hollows and planks done.
    Food prep done-chicken, burgers and eggs. Veges cut up. Goto meal:
    Chicken breast or pork chops and roasted sweet potatoes(organic from Costco)
    2 sp sliced 1/2 inch then in half
    1 T avocado or olive oil
    1 t garlic in olive oil
    1 T rosemary
    Pinch of thyme
    Punch of crushed red pepper
    Mix all-spread in fool lined pan. Cook 450 for 30 minutes. I use the "oven stop" on and they are ready whenever I am. They are great leftovers - cold. (Weird I know) Jolynn

  6. Had a family get together at noon today to celebrate baptisms of grandsons. Small cheat...about a 1/4 cup chicken salad (not Paleo) and a few crackers. Also ate lots of fruit to get through the meal. Tonight will be preparing the egg muffins for breakfasts this week. That seems to be the meal I need to be most prepared for since I'm usually running late every morning! We have brisket left over from last night and lots of green salad, so we'll eat on that along with some added veggies and fruit for the next few days. Hollow rocks and planks done.

  7. One of my post wod meals that is quick and easy and light on the tummy - Sweet Potato Pie - Ingredients: 1 very large or 2 small sweet potatoes, baked until soft and skin removed
    4 eggs
    1 tsp cinnamon (a pinch of nutmeg is nice too if you like it)

    Preheat oven to 350. Blend sweet potatoes, eggs, and cinnamon until smooth. Pour into greased pie plate and bake for 25-30 minutes or until center is firm and top begins to brown lightly.

  8. Just got done with 4hrs off meal prepping.....just setting my self up for success. I have a big work week planned with long hours and stress, so sick of saying that but it's almost over. I made roasted carrots and broccoli with coconut oil and salt n pepper. I saw a recipe by paleo omg or paleo mom for baked sweet potatoes with coconut oil and nutmeg, house smelled amazing. I baked some chicken, made an egg casserole with bacon, red bell peppers, onions and bacon. I have some brisket in the crockpot and that should last me n my girl Erica the whole week. The highlight if my day was a 5.5ml jog. I miss it and love it, no thinking, just go lol. crossfit has really helped my time. I plan to make at least 4wods and excited about the lifting class Saturday. maybe I'll be one of the 10 George is talking about eeeeek!!!
    good luck everybody!!!

  9. Of the restaurants above, we have been to Company Café (my favorite!) and Kozy Kitchen. We want to go to HG Supply, but are saving that for a date night!
    I worked today and we ran around like crazy yesterday. So meal prep will happen tomorrow! I will make pork chop apple compote with sweet potatoes, roast, and tons of veggies!

  10. We've been to all of the restaurants above......and had burgers at Start for fast food. I love Kozy Kitchen the best so far!!! Nobodys had a bad meal yet, and they have *GASP* Gluten free cake which is TRULY a cheat......... and its so good! Second place would be Company Cafe... and I did love my dinner at HG Supply, but it didnt fill me up!! :-) and while the Kettle bell dessert was FUN to look at, it wasnnot tasty to me! A fun experience though!! I didnt prep today........I just fly by the seat of my pants usually. Im going to make chickens tomorrow for the weeks meals, and broth.. bought some bones today from Whole foods for beef broth, and I'll make chicken next! OH and I Don't think I put my mark on the board, but I vote for George as favorite WOD! :-)

  11. Not a lot of prep for me to do since I'm not the cook but we do have plenty of salads, variety of meats and fruits...with Wickey retired it makes it easy not to think about what to fix. sounds so good and so easy..will want to try that this week. Thank you for sharing. Burpees...done and ran walked a 5K today.

  12. I just got home from around 8:30 pm from a long day of Church, football and cheerleading! Maybe I can prep some tomorrow morning after my WOD.

  13. I usually don't prep. I eat a lot of fish and I like it fresh. Have apt of veggies cut up though. Good luck everyone

  14. Drove back from Houston today and returned too late for food prep activities. Unfortunately, on the road a few days this week so I will definitely have a daily challenge. As far as prep ideas go, I normally grill extra yellow and red peppers on Sunday nights, and cut them up during the week to spice up my scrambled eggs.
